ALEX Toys Craft Kits Review and Giveaway! @alextoys #alextoys

My friends at ALEX Toys were generous to send some of their super fun craft kits
to me and the girls to play with this month! The girls had a blast with them and we wanted to share the fun with you by offering a giveaway from ALEX Toys to Pink and Green Mama readers.
If your name is drawn by Random.org, you may select one of the three craft kits we sampled
to Create, Play, and Explore with your own kids!
ALEX's mission is to provide children with creative products to help them learn and build confidence, personal expression, and self-esteem -- I couldn't agree more on how important that is!
ALEX sent us an Eco Scrapbook kit to play with.
My oldest daughter, "E" (age 10) got into the Eco Scrapbook kit immediately.
She has been working on it for several weekends and is still working on it.
She is making a scrapbook about our backyard and taking photos with my camera for it.


She loved the fun alphabet stickers, the cute papers, and the suggested layouts shown on the box cover.
She's having fun adding her own touches like "faux woodgrain"contact paper trees, washi tape, and nature drawings. She's also using mommy's scrapbooking trick of marking her layout pages with post-it notes to remind her of which photos she wants to go back and add later!
It's so fun to watch her creative process.


ALEX sent us the Super Window Sticker Art kit to play with. 
"E" also loved the Window Sticker Art Kit. But it was too challenging for her little sister, "C" (age 6.) 


The kit comes with black and white line drawings to use as patterns
 but my girls wanted to make their own designs so they sketched some drawings 
with a black marker on white paper and used them instead. 



"C" really wanted to try it though so her big sister took one of C's drawings of her favorite stuffed tiger "Hobbes" and made her a custom Pink Tiger face window cling for her bedroom window! 




"E" loves squids so she made her own squid window cling by outlining a custom line drawing. 
She used the kit's flower, fish, and "BFF" patterns to make some clings for friends. 


DIY stained glass with a personal touch! Love it. 


They were also generous to send us the Sweet Treats Jewelry kit, 
we are planning to play with that one this weekend! We ALL love shrinky dinks!

So...now I bet you want to play and create with some ALEX kits as well. 
Here's your chance, enter my giveaway below 
for a chance to win your choice of one of these three, super fun craft kits from ALEX Toys!

My daughter received the window art kit for her birthday from grandma this year and we have had so much fun with it! We'd love to have more of the supplies for that! But we'd also love to try the shrinky dink kit.

Oh gosh, this is a tough one! I think maybe the shrinky dink one would be our favorite, but it's a tough call with the window art kit!
